Kim has worked at Cenote Dive Center, Xibalba Dive Center and also as a “freelance” and independent
guide and instructor in Tulum since 2003. Just leaving for about 2 years in total to pursue diving
elsewhere, working with his father and for the birth of his son.
His passion for cave diving lead him to the realization that he would like to teach the art of safe cave
Kim has been fortunate to explore some of the amazing caves and systems in Mexico and this is his true
passion. Connecting the dots and to see how a cave grows is the ultimate kick and Kim is often struck
by “cave fever”…
He is interested in the pedagogical aspects of teaching, always striving to become a better instructor and
to deliver the best possible course in the best possible way. Other interests are: CCR diving, sidemount
diving, dpv diving, wreck diving, mine diving and technical mixed gas diving. He is also interested in the
documentation of the caves and caverns and participates in an ongoing film project with good friends.
